Health and wealth issue is just like the chicken and the egg situation. Which is more important. When I was young, I used all my health to gain wealth. Now, retiring, my wealth is used to regain my health. Do you feel the same as well? I am retiring because I realised that health cannot be repurchsed easily. What is your view on this issue?

health of course, you can have all the money in the world but if you are not healthy you are not going to enjoy it, when a person gets critically sick this is when they learn to appreciate very small things in life, money may make ones life a little easier but it is not everything...

It is so touching to know that most members here are wise people. No health no wealth. If there is a 1000 responses on this topic, I believe 99.99 per cent wants to be healthy first.

as u said 99.99per cent i am in it too. without health you just cannot do anything with wealth. good question and example you have. to tell more people health is actually more important. don't spoil your body by doing things(smoking, drinking,eating junks food always,etc.) that harm our body fast. or if they are young and their health are damaged, no money this result in bad ending...

It would have to be health for me. I am very unhealthy right now and I would give all the money in the world to be a normal healthy person. Of course I want money too but health is definently first for me.

Yeah, I can say I agree to your point. It is like a wheel. One time the health is on top but when the time comes, it will roll to the bottom. Our lifespan is like that, and it has an indirect connection with wealth. If we happen to have wealth in our old age, it is a bonus. If not, it is like we have a win-lose situation in the game of life. Lol... that's my opinion though.
